Due to forestry operations in Lugduff forest, the southern half of the Blue route (along the forest road) is closed. The northern half of the route, along the Spinc boardwalk remains open. The White and Red routes are therefore unaffected.
The Red Route and the Wicklow Way are also open again following closures.

Due to the huge demand for the services of the Education Centre in Wicklow Mountains National Park, many schools are unable to get a booking. This worksheet has been designed to enable teachers to bring their class to Glendalough to do their own self-guided field trip. To assist you, teachers’ notes are also provided.
